Surface Design Show 2019 places focus on public realm

From 5 to 7th February, Surface Design Show 2019 will take place at London’s Business Design Centre to provide a platform for architects, designers and specifiers to explore the best in interior and exterior surface material and lighting design, development, innovation and manufacturing.

Surface Design Show

Each year, the show provides a focus on particular areas of design, helping to highlight the materials that most benefit these environments. This year, the focus will be on the workplace and public realm. The Surface Design Show 2019 will feature talks by retail and landscape architects and lighting designers as well as hosting an exciting range of companies and products including natural stone, recycled materials, permeable products, concrete and living walls.

From exquisitely handcrafted surfaces to the latest technological advances in architectural lighting, the Surface Design Show hosts over 150 exhibitors each year highlighting the very best in surface design. Returning exhibitors include Pixalux, Grestec Tiles and FINSA. New to the show is Nerostein, a specialist in the production of granite, marble, quartz and acrylic worktops, and Friends of Wilson, designer and maker of acoustic panels, hanging screens and room dividers.

Since 2013, the show has hosted the Surface Design Awards, now recognised as one of the most respected events in the design calendar. Of a total of 13 categories, two are dedicated to the design of public environments. The entries to the ‘Public Building Interior’ and ‘Public Building Exterior’ categories came from either Germany or the United Kingdom, which is home to Writ in Water, a major architectural artwork by Mark Wallinger in collaboration with Studio Octopi, for the National Trust at Runnymede, Surrey. The judges expressed they felt the project was “magical”, with Jeremy Offer, Chief Design Officer for electric and autonomous vehicle manufacturer at Arrival, commenting that there was “a tranquil monastic feel to it” highlighting “time, place
and emotion.”

The 2019 awards received entries from across Europe, the USA, Australia, China, Korea and India. The awards recognise the best and most interesting exterior and interior surfaces for different sectors of design, including commercial, housing, light and surface, public building, retail, sustainable and temporary structures. The awards presentation at #SDS19 will take place on the morning of Thursday 7th February.

The 2019 judging panel was co-chaired by Christophe Egret, Founding Partner at Studio Egret West, and Paul Priestman, Chairman at PriestmanGoode. The full panel comprised Cany Ash, Partner at Ash Sakula Architects; James Soane, Director at Project Orange; Jeremy Offer, Chief Creative Officer at future-focused vehicle designer Arrival; Katie Greenyer, Creative Talent & Network Director at Pentland Group; Paul Edwards, Head of Creative Design at Airbus and Roz Barr, Director of Roz Barr Architects.

Registration for this year’s Surface Design Show is now open.
